** CUBA [and non]. 11850, May 12 at 0141, RHC Spanish is S9+20 and
suptorted. Something`s always wrong at RHC. Parasite 11840 is JBM;
11860 confronts another carrier beating, probably Yemen via Sa`udi
Arabia, and remnants of pulse jamming, Cuban Commies vs Commies (Glenn
Hauser, OK, WOR)

** CUBA. 6060, May 12 at 0607, RHC English with humbuzz, but 6165 &
6100 are still on for a change with OK modulation; 6000 is as usual
off by now; and 5040 is still on but in Spanish. Something`s always
wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** GREECE. 9420, May 11 at 1936 check via UTwente, ERT is S9+30 but
extremely distorted! A shame since they play so much music, not just
Greek. VOG`s last SW transmitter may be on the way out. This has been
a hot topic on the WOR iogroup. Many other reports of distortion, but
sometimes not. It was missing on May 9, causing concern for those who
did not realize that it always takes Sundays off into UT Mondays
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** OKLAHOMA. 1210, May 11 at 2050 UT, KGYN Guymon audio is cutting on
and off rapidly, unusable. Is no one paying attention? This 10 kW ND
at 183 miles does barely reach Enid by daytime groundwave across the
Ogallala Aquifer. Per NRC AM Log, there is a CP to raise day power to
22 kW. Not the only problem at KGYN lately: Rick Dau reported on his
roadtrip to NRC:

``1210 KGYN OK Guymon - 4/24 2015 [converted by gh to UT] - Strong, of
course, but with OC, which was noted by me from the time I crossed the
Texas-Oklahoma state line south of Bryans Corner, Oklahoma on U.S.
Highway 83 (approx. 1930) to the Oklahoma-Kansas state line on
Oklahoma State Highway 136 (approx. 2045). Station should have been
airing the Steve Hartman Show via Fox Sports Radio at the time. Oops!
(RD-OK)`` (Glenn Hauser, Enid, WOR)

** PUERTO RICO. 391-MCW kHz, May 12 at 0613 UT, ND beacon DDP is JBA
vs storm noise level, from Dorado/San Juan. Always nice to get this
but what about all the other NDBs in Latin America? (Glenn Hauser, OK,

** ROMANIA. 13650, May 11 at 2039, RRI half-hour English is F-G here,
S8-S5 but no signal on // 11850; about vaccines. At least one of their
transmitters is down again (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** SPAIN. 17855, May 12 at 0143, zero signal from REE to North America
which is scheduled until 0200 weekdays. It had been detectable in the
afternoon, yet now totally unpropagating. But 11940 to S America is
sufficient, S9+10/20. Something`s always nonsensical at Noblejas
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 2085 monitoring: can anyone confirm
the Wed May 12 at 1030 on WRMI 5850? Next:

[reception may be worse than usual with G3 geomagnetic storms past and
future, and K-index of 7 as of 1800 per WWV]

2100 UT Wednesday WRMI 7780 to NE
2100 UT Wednesday WBCQ 7490v to WSW
2200 UT Wednesday WRMI 9955 [jammed?] to SSE

** VANUATU. 11835, May 12 at 0605, R. Vanuatu X 3 is on again but JBA
(Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

UNIDENTIFIED. 475.65 kHz, May 12 at 0613 fast CW is JBA, unreadable,
presumably a ham. Dave Frantz`s WA4SZE/BEACON from TN, conveying his
website would be much stronger and slower, but in virtually nightly
bandscans has not been heard since Dec 31 tho other reports ran until
Jan 13 (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)
